|~ Alex Zorgen|
Alex Zorgen is an antagonist in Season 10 of Criminal Minds. He is the leader of a human trafficking ring that caters exclusively to serial killers and other like-minded individuals.
He was portrayed by Brian Howe.
In or before 1993, Alex decided to start a sex trafficking ring catering to serial killers and similar individuals. His first victim was Donna Mangold, who he abducted and repeatedly raped and tortured until she developed Stockholm's Syndrome after years of confinement, eventually giving birth to their son Kyle. Both Donna and Kyle went on to assist in the management of the ring.
At the end of the season premier "X", Alex, Donna and Kyle are seen in a van following a female jogger. Donna asks her for directions, and the woman approaches, at which point Kyle pulls her into the van and Alex drives away. Alex is then shown putting the woman up for auction on his website. It is also mentioned that the episode's main antagonist Steven Parkett bought his victims from the Zorgen's trafficking ring.
Alex realizes that FBI agent Kate Callahan is investigating how Parkett got his victims, and is getting closer to discovering the trafficking ring. As a result, he plots revenge on her, and orders Kyle and Donna to abduct Kate's niece Meg and her friend Markayla Davis. Donna and Kyle abduct the girls and bring them to Alex, but Markayla manages to get free and escapes into the woods. Frustrated, Alex shoots Kyle.
Alex disguises Meg by cutting and dying her hair before taking a photo of her and putting it on his site, where she is bought by Colin Dupley. However, the BAU are able to identify Alex as the leader of the trafficking operation through his buyer Miles Hendrick, and he and Donna are arrested. Alex is interrogated by Aaron Hotchner and David Rossi, and taunts them that they will never find Meg. However, his revenge scheme fails when the BAU inform Donna that Alex killed Kyle, at which point she breaks down and tells them where Meg is.
